    OBITUARY: From Geneva Gazette 24 June 1881
Last Saturday morning a young girl named Anna Ellen Gray either committed suicide deliberately, or died from the effect of an overdose of medicine taken to produce an abortion. We have obtained facts in the case so far as developed from the sorrowing father, Elijah Gray, who is a resident of this town. "Nellie", as she was familiarly called, had been out at service as a domestic for two or three years – for the last three months and at the time of her death in the family of David Westfall, just over our county line and in the town of Lyons. Nellie was fond of young society, accustomed to attend country dances, and thus of being out late at nights. For this she was upbraided and even chastised by her parents. But they thought no greater wrong had been committed by her than making some improper acquaintances. The sequal proves that her ruin had been accomplished.

Saturday morning last Nellie did not get up to perform her accustomed work. On being called she said she was sick. Her mistress left her undisturbed and prepared the meal herself. While at breakfast Mrs. Westfall was startled by the sound of a heavy fall on the floor in Nellie's room. Going upstairs she found Nellie lying on the floor behind the door, face downward, and unconscious. Mrs. W. at once called her husband who upon reaching the room found the unfortunate girl dead. The room was in great disorder, the bedclothes and even the deceased's clothing torn and strewn in every direction, showing that she must have suffered greatly during the night and become deranged. Coroner Livingston of Clyde was notified who summoned a jury, and an investigation and post mortem examinations were held, Drs. Putnam of Lyons and Dr. Robinson of Alloway conducting the latter. The revelation was made that the girl was in about the seventh month of pregnancy. A bottle of suspicious looking medicine was found in her trunk, which indicated that she had attempted an abortion. The stomach and vital organs, Mr. Gray informed us, were sent to Rochester for analysis to determine what was the exact character of the deadly drug or poison taken. But without the chemist's report, the coroner's jury rendered a verdict that deceased came to her death from an overdose of medicine taking for the purpose of producing an abortion. We cannot learn upon whom suspicion fastens as the direct cause of the poor girl's ruin. Whoever it be, he must be haunted by remorse as accessory to her murder so long as he lives.

G. W. GRAY'S BODY FOUND AFTER 2 DAYS AT CLIFF FOOT; Tragedy Discovered by Two Campers; Authorities Investigating; Nature of Country Prevents Removal of Body Until This Morning

The body of George W. Gray, believed killed about two days ago, was found in the wreckage of his automobile last night by two campers at the foot of a 200 feet cliff on the Keswick road. Due to the hazardous climb over the rocky formation from the road to the foot of the cliff, no effort was made last night to bring the body out. Authorities, notified by the discoverers of the body, immediately started an investigation.  The accident occurred 100 yards beyond the Rock creek bridge on the Keswick road. A request to remove the body was made to McDonald & Scott, but after an inspection of the scene it was decided that nothing could be done until daylight. Little could be learned of Gray's history last night.  He resided a short distance beyond the point at which he met his death.

GEORGE W. GREY RITES SET FOR TODAY; PRIVATE; Investigation Reveals Man Was Killed About Five Days Ago

Funeral services for George W. Grey, 48, victim of an automobile accident on the Keswick road, will be conducted this afternoon from the chapel of McDonald & Scott and burial will be made in Redding cemetery.  The services will be private, in accordance with the request of J. E. Grey of Yreka, a brother of the dead man. Coroner A. F. Souza, Jr., after an investigation of the accident, estimated Grey had been dead about five days when discovered Monday night by two campers at the foot of a 100 feet cliff a short distance beyond the Rock creek bridge. Little information concerning the manner of the accident could be obtained.  Witnesses were found who said they saw Grey in Redding either last Friday or Saturday night, but could not be sure of the exact day.  It is believed he left here the former night and met death while enroute to his home six miles beyond the scene of the accident.

    OBITUARY: From Geneva Gazette 21 August 1891
ANOTHER CASE OF "DIDN'T KNOW IT WAS LOADED" - A sad accident happened yesterday at 11 o'clock at the home of Mrs. Jane Gray, about two miles northeast of Geneva on the Pre-emption road, which resulted in the death of Frankie Newkirk, a little girl aged 10, who was boarding at the house of Mrs. Gray, her grandmother.  It seems that Mrs. Gray had been absent from home all day, and had left her son Joseph, a boy aged 12, and the little girl Frankie alone.  While she was gone the girl Frankie told Joseph where his mother had hidden the pistol (an old fashioned single barrel pistol), and he getting it sat down on one side of the room playing with it, while the girl sat in the doorway sewing.  Accidentally the pistol was discharged, sending a bullet into the girl's head, hitting her on the verge of the frontal bone and entering the brain.  It proved a fatal shot, and the poor victim died in about four hours.  Drs. Weyburn & Leonard were both promptly called but could do nothing for the ill-fated girl.  Coroner Bellows of Seneca county took the case in hand for a thorough investigation.
